Lati S.p.A. uses, for the formulation of
its wide range of products, over 500 raw materials
among basic resins, reinforcements, additives,
lubricants and dyes.
For each of these, a MSDS is requested from the
supplier, which is evaluated following strict
toxicological procedures in order to authorize
their potential use; the philosophy pursued
by Lati S.p.A., which has made this one of
the leading points of its environmental policy,
is the continuous search for less hazardous
raw materials to man and the environment.
This has allowed Lati S.p.A. to find itself in
a situation of advantage when legislative interventions
have lead to the restriction of those raw materials,
enabling the company to offer its customers
an ecological alternative. This kind of approach
anticipates many of the requirements provided
for by the new European Regulation, concerning
the registration, evaluation and authorization
of chemical substances, better known as REACh.
Following this careful evaluation, the raw material
is first brought to the R&D laboratories to
verify its properties, after which the preindustrialization
phase starts, in which the product is fine-tuned
in conformity with the required standards.
Only then the raw material can enter the productive
All the MSDS, for both experimental and production
raw materials, and their properties contribute
to the creation of a toxicological database, constantly
updated, included in the SAP management system
and used for the creation of the finished products
Lati S.p.A. suppliers are invited to send the
MSDS of their products, in Italian and drawn up
as per Regulation
EC No. 1907/2006 (formerly Dir. 2001/58/EC), email to the appropriate address.
